“You need a new circle dude.”
they don’t believe in me
Whenever you pursue a career you really want to do, you will always have people who doubt you. You have those that think you are no good, or not good enough. And they feel this way because they have an idea of how they see you. They can’t see past what you are, that is ingrained in their heads. Whenever you exceed the expectations of others they start to get upset with you. Why, well you’re not supposed to be more than what I see. Because my belief system means something. And if you are more than my belief, then you are going to be perceived as someone I will clash with in life.
watch the company you keep
Who are these people in your inner circle that feel they need to be the ones telling you that you are no good. Now granted, sometimes people make some good points and assessments of who you are, but at times they are more envious than anything. That’s when it’s time to choose a new circle of people. Because being around people like this can stunt your career growth. If all you hear are people telling you what is or isn’t possible, you start to believe in the voices. And before you know it, you’re producing garbage or quitting just to satisfy others around you.
look into their lives
Before you take the advice of someone or people that say to you that you can’t succeed, take a look at their existence. I am willing to bet you that they are doing something that they truly love. Because anyone that loves what they do are not going to sway you away from what you’re good at or love to do. People like to project what they don’t like about themselves onto you. They can’t see themselves in that position and they feel they are more talented than you. So how is it that you’re gong to be in that specific place in life.

“You will never make it, so why try?”
We’re always taught in our lives to surround ourselves with good people. Place yourself around those going in the same direction as you. But what happens when all of that is attempted to be derailed by someone who wants to kill your dreams. That means you have to work that much harder to make it happen yourself. Those dream killers are the doubters who either out loud or silently told you it would never happen. They are the ones who it didn’t work for them, and don’t want it to work for you. Where does it come from; why do they need to feel the need to bring you down? And why do you actually in a way need these type of people in your life.
Doubters are people who for a number of reasons may not want to see you succeed in your career of interests. You have the first group of doubters that are the ones that will tell you try something else. They are flat out not interested in anything you do. They see you in the present state and can’t see past that point. You’re perceived by them as a slacker or loser. So they can’t get around the loser that is you. So to them you’re going to always be what your are. Another group of doubters are the people whose careers didn’t pan out so they have to tell you how much it won’t work for you. To them, they couldn’t make it and there is no way you’re better than them. So they just know you’ll fail in life. And if you do succeed, they’ll find the most negative stuff to say about you.
The third group of doubters are the people who have their success and don’t want you to surpass them. To them, you are a threat and must be stopped. But they are not going to just stop you, they’ll be overly negative. The goal is to get you to quit because a lot of times you work for them. They are comfortable with you under them and can’t stand you above where they think you should be. Kind of how comedians have come out recently after Kevin Hart. They were fine when he was below them, now he’s way above them, and now there is every reason to say he doesn’t deserve it. But the last group of doubters are the flat out hate group. They usually have no real discernible talent, and need to bring you down. Because your success further shows how much of their life was a waste. Especially if they remember when both of you were at the bottom. It shows how much time they’ve wasted in their lives.
Now, with all that I have stated, why do we need these doubters? Well, first and foremost they push us to be better. There is no motivation like people telling you you’re not good enough. You work overtime to prove them wrong. But I think the biggest reason we need doubters is to gain an insight into the human psyche. People who doubt you expose aspects of their personality. And not because of criticism; but hate. Criticizing someone is fine when you have a solution to make a situation better. But hate for the sake of hate let’s you in on who the criticizers are internally. And in the end that’s the just of doubters. They have their own internal workings going on. But how they see you and who you really are is totally different. As long as you have self-awareness, what they say has no hold.
